St Lukes Church, Spital Tongues

  • Description

    Official Website of the church. "St Luke’s was built in 1886 as the daughter church of St. Andrew’s; the oldest church in Newcastle. The faithful congregation dwindled until 2006 when the church was closed. The Bishop of Newcastle then invited Robert to become vicar at St Luke’s and to bring in the fledgling congregation (affectionately called ‘New Wine on Tyne’ by its members!) which he had begun 3 years earlier, with 7 adults and 3 children in a small council hall. Thus becoming a unique Anglican hybrid – a parish church that is also a Fresh Expression! There was a wonderful induction service held in January 2007...."
